I could not find the answer to my question anywhere, so I ask the question here.
We are trying to establish Veeam Backup in our organisation. Veeam B&R itself will be installed in one VM to backup other ESXi VMs. VM files itself are located on 2 NAS storages (NFS-Storage)). Are there any reasons to take Windows 2008 Server OS for the Veeam Backup installation instead of Windows 7? I have read, that many of you prefer Windows 2008, but I would like to know the reason.
Thank you in advance
P.S.: I apologize for my terrible English 8(((

Also, if the Veeam Server is going to be a VM, I take advantage of multi-license in the VM environment for 2008 (enteprise or datacenter licenses) that can probably save money having spare licenses around. Also, I like to creare Veeam Proxies with Windows 2008 Core installations to save on datastores.
